Who designed the Mercury Gold Dime and what does it represent?
This 1/10 oz. Gold Centennial has the same designs as the original Mercury dime, which was designed by Adolph Weinman. The Mercury moniker is a misnomer that resulted from the similarity of the obverse image, Liberty wearing a winged pileus, to the famed Greek mythological figure. The reverse was a product of its time. The fasces that stands vertically on the reverse symbolizes America’s military readiness, while the olive branch that is wrapped around it represents a preference for peace.
What does Specimen 70 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation mean?
When coins have some characteristics of proofs and some characteristics of bullion coins, the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) refers to them as “Specimen.” The 70 grade, as with other types of coins, indicates that the coin is flawless even when viewed under 5x magnification.
